Period of
Product Use:
3 months
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Sniper II (a lot heavier then the sterling, but can be tweaked to personal preferences. )

Vertical Stock Class Phantom (lighter still then the sterling but harder to keep up in faster paced games if you get cornered because of the necessity to angle the body when pumping to feed properly, and having a very limited amount of paintballs)
Marker Setup: Eclipse Sterling with smart parts AA barrel, and two bolts (dialer bolt to make adjusting velocity easier, and the standard bolt.)
The aluminum grip frame if you want to try to run tanks from the grip since the stock composite grip though still more robust then a stock sniper grip is still a bit rickity.
Strengths: Shoots wonderful out of the both with CO2. Can be shot very quickly if your arm can keep up with the pumping.
Weaknesses: Ackward to run anything larger then a 7/9 oz CO2 tank. It's not easy to put a compressed tank onto it. And as with any of the sterlings is difficult to adjust the velocity if i'm not using the dialer bolt that came with it (if i want to use the plain bolt i would need to add washers to increase velocity or clip the spring to lower it.) Also the composite grip is a bit rickity if you try to mount a compressed tank onto it.
Conclusion: It's an amazingly beautiful gun, and operates exceptionally well. Shoots great right out of the box. The dialer bolt from eclipse though makes it so easy to adjust the velocity compared to the regular bolt. Though unfortunately is hard to mount anything besides the back bottle CO2 tanks. Since I have a decent amount of steel braided hose around if I want to mount compressed air.
10 out of 10
